SOULROT is a death metal band from Valparaiso, Chile, South America, influenced mainly by the old death metal bands from Europe (Sweden, Finland, Holland). Their story starts in 1993, at least the spirit of the band itself, when JL Olmos, then in his early teens, decided to start a project, with him taking charge of the lead guitars. The band rehearsed, but didnt last more than a couple of months, never releasing any material, and the few recordings from rehearsals got lost with the march of time. JL then went into other ventures, like founding the local grind legends Cranial, and played and collaborated with several local acts like Dissident, Thrash Attack, Fractal, local thrash heroes Betrayed among others, but he retained the idea to form his own band. So, in 2013, he decided it was time to give it another try, and started to write new material (some old riffs from his first run remained), and he felt it suited well with the spirit of his first band, and thus, the reincarnation of Soulrot was born.
Looking for people to assist him in this task, he came accross two rotten souls, in the persons of JH Wilschrey, bassist for the death metal act Sadistic Murder, and
FRL, drummer with experience in the local grindcore scene, ex member of Satanic Cumshot and Obscure Dust, just to name two of his old projects. The trio started to practice and in a couple of weeks it was clear that this was not to be a one-man-project with session members, instead becoming a full time band, with each member adding unique elements.
